The Healthy Snack Game

2009-10-27 13:41 - 0 Comments
Can we get more people to pick up a healthy snack at work by making it fun to do? This idea is based on the classic fairground game, where the user has to steer a crane with a hug claw to pick up the best prize possible. There could also be a high score board where the whole office can see who is best at doing to something healthy. If this was put out in a public place then winners could also win vouchers to healthy restaurants too. Submitted by Chris Thompson

Tinkle Target

2009-11-19 15:46 - 0 Comments

Little boys need some fun. Especially when they go number one. A target for aiming the stream will keep the floor just a bit more clean. I suggest even upping the ante, and have sensors in the target where the longer they can "Keep their aim" the more points they get... Points that can get them some sort of reward.

The negative mood of the great majority of people that can result on further violence or isolation. To make people realize that they have enough reasons to be happy, they just need a detonator to speak out and share them.

These days all the people is seeking to be famous, to be broadcasted, express themselves; this “Happy Booth”, located in any public space, is a nice way to do this.

Machines to recycle

2009-12-16 13:53 - 0 Comments

The problem is that people don’t take time to recycle. The solution will be that we found a way to recycle and at the same time have fun. If you want to have fun and at the same time recycle plastic, cans, paper, glass, carton and used batteries you can go to the Machines to Recycle. Instead of using coins and wasting your money you can bring recycle things and you will play with machines. Each machine has different things, for example one will be of cans, you will give cans and then you can play.

Battery Recycling Jukebox

2009-12-16 15:26 - 0 Comments

Batteries disposed irresponsibly in municipal landfills or trash incinerators can disperse significant amounts of toxic substances in the air and water. So, a battery waste prevention and recycling campaign is more than welcomed. And how can we stimulate people in joining and promoting these initiatives more but by making this entertaining, fun and engaging for them?

Polite Light

2009-11-24 16:10 - 0 Comments

People often leave their offices at the end of the day and forget the lights on. This is bad for the company and for the environment. Think about it: if a person works from 8am to 6pm, the lights should be on for only 10 hours, but if they forget to turn it off, it's on for 24 hours, more than twice the necessary. So, can we solve that problem by making turning off the lights fun? My idea is to have a "polite light" that thanks the person every time he/she turns it off. We could use different voices and different languages to say thank you, found in movies or music.

Dance at the Zebra Crossing

2009-11-23 16:34 - 0 Comments

In major cities around the world pedestrians do not respect the red traffic light at road crossings and prefer to run carps, causing delays in traffic and sometimes even personal injury to themselves. Across the zebra crossing on both sides of the road there will be two identical installations comprised of a modified "push button and wait for signal" box. It will have a speaker set and music. When the button is pushed the pavement sticker starts the game. When the traffic light for pedestrians turns red, the music starts and the bubbles light up.

Social Pedometer

2009-12-16 20:05 - 0 Comments

By using competition and social networking, we can make walking places more fun, encouraging fitness and a reduced reliance on cars for short trips. This is a pedometer (step-counter) that can be either an application for a smart phone or a separate USB device. It counts your steps through the day, then uploads them automatically to a website that tracks everyone's steps. On the website, you can compete against others, as well as create groups to compete against each other groups, so your office or school could have competitions within itself and with other schools and organizations.

Hand Washing Art

2009-10-27 15:00 - 0 Comments

What problem to solve? It's a problem that people don't wash their hands. After meeting friends, after a toilet visit or just after a day in the city. Unwashed hands can make you or the people you know sick, but that's easy to change. If we make washing hands fun, at hospitals or in public toilets, hopefully more people will start doing it. My idea is that we put a camera in the wash sink, faced towards you. When you start washing your hands, blur colours will appear in the mirror, following your hands move and you will be able to make art. That's my way of having fun.

Have you ever notice that: when people open the tap, do they use the water or just do something like brush their teeth or stylish their hair but open the tap without conscious. They just unconsiously waste the water resource. We need something can remind them: you should be awareness of saving the water. We would like to design a tap built in a “bomb”. When people open the tap, they must wash their hands and turn off it within 7 seconds. Otherwise, the led display shall show explosion and sound serious warning.

Ride your bike more

2009-12-15 14:56 - 0 Comments

People can be encouraged to do tough, good things by giving them appreciation for it. It's winter, cold, rainy and hard to get up in the morning. Even worse to get on a bike and start pedalling. Even though it's great exercise and an easy way of improving the environment. The solution to this problem is a private fan club that cheers you on when the obstacle seems to big. This could be done by installing sensors and speakers with cheering sounds along cycle paths. You will feel as if the wind was blowing in your back and like it's downhill all the time.

Many people read comics rather than reading dictionaries.. However, dictionary has more useful informations. So if we make the dictionary that is talking when we filp the page,or touching the book, than many people will rather read dictionary than comics. Submitted by Mom.

Over the Weather

2009-12-15 23:31 - 0 Comments

Over the weather. How to make bad weather fun? Location : Copenhagen, but the project is adaptable to other cities Description: Weather changes. And we can feel this change, as the temperature drops, the rain starts to drip, the winds starts howling. We notice the change, and it affects our lives in many ways. In Copenhagen, everyone is worried about the weather and everybody talks about it. It’s a recurrent subject, more than in other cities, because here, the weather is changing so often. Due of the proximity of the sea, there is a lot of wind, especially when the seasons are changing.

Currently most sustainabile responses are focused on land where we can monitor the proposed changes, while the water which covers 70% of our Earth’s surface tends to be neglected. Since the phytoplankton growing within the oceans provides 50% of Earth’s photosynthesis, ocean vitality is paramount for all life. Already we have lost 30% and 14% of phytoplankton in the North Pacific and North Atlantic Oceans respectively since the 80s. Specifically, we must counteract the damaging effects of excess carbon dioxide and acidification from our polluting habits.

Fun mirrors

2009-12-16 15:25 - 0 Comments

We always forget to wash our hands after we go to the restroom. So the idea is to put a mini game on the mirror and the buttons are on the bottom. You will have 30 seconds to wash them and win the mini game.You will have three buttons on the sink, the buttons have a protector against water. The mirror will have 5 different mini games and are chose randomly. If you win bubbles will come out from different parts of the room, but if you loose you will be splashed by a ballon that is up on the roof but inside. The mirror will say the instructions on the right in a paper.

There are symbols to almost everything: gay community, luck, breast cancer, aids and more. So, why not a icon to represent the Fun Theory? An icon to be seen everywhere, all the time: in T-shirts, sticks, stamps, magazines, outdoors, pins, signs, the moon!!! Something universal, clean, strong, inspiring, to really make a statement. Like the smilie face, but in royal blue. It is positive reinforcement linked to other subjects such as driving, eating, the environment, people, love, health or safety. The idea has been out there for years, but there is a need for a concrete message.

The Bus Stops are boring places, we intend, using less money as possible, to transform them into interactive and joyfully places. Every week a big crosswords table will be installed at the bus stop. The people that are waiting for the bus could play completing the crosswords, using a big pencil (to avoid people to steal it) connected to the bus stop with a little chain…
